Someone posted an article here last year which explained why Prague has become the gay porn capital of Europe. I wish I could remember what publication it was.
Male or female, OP?
Lack of jobs? They''re poorly educated?\
They have nothing going on but their looks?
Desperate poverty, "Children Underground". It explains one of the facets of why this is happening. During communist rule, the Eastern Bloc was prohibited from using contraceptives and encouraged the impoverished people to procreate further. \
The result is now we have an entire generation of people who were abandoned by their families because the parents could no longer afford to feed, clothe and shelter them. \
There is a whole subset of people who have turned to prostitution and pornography to simply survive. Match this with unscrupulous scumbag pimps and disgusting sex tourists (mainly from Germany, Japan and the US) and you have the current dismal situation going on.
Romania, where "Children Underground" is filmed, is a far cry from the Czech Republic. I don''t think people are as desperate in C.R. I think it''s just a way to make "easy" money.
The issues that effect Romania are the same in the Czech Republic, Hungary. Bulgaria and all of the other Slavic, formerly communist nations.
And, R5, it helps that so many of them are exceedingly attractive.
R6, there''s no such thing as easy money when you''re a prostitute, especially a male prostitute. Pretending to be turned on by some obese, smelly, shriveled old john requires extraordinary acting skills, a skill set I certainly never had. %0D\
Your romanticized, delusional fantasy about whoring being easy money is total bullshit.
[quote]Desperate poverty, "Children Underground". It explains one of the facets of why this is happening. During communist rule, the Eastern Bloc was prohibited from using contraceptives\
The whole Eastern Bloc? I think that was particularly a Rumanian issue under Ceaucescu.
r9 I don''t think you usually get "obese" and "shriveled" in the same package. I don''t care for my rent boys to pretend I''m hot, because we both know he''s here for the money. I only expect them to not be mean or contemptuous.
R9 is right, being a whore is not easy money or easy work at all.%0D\
I posted this in another thread, but if you are a whore it''s not at all like in the movies, such as "Pretty Woman" where a guy who looks like Richard Gere is going to be your john. 90% of the time your john is going to look like Scott Rudin. Imagine having to screw that repulsive mess and pretend you''re really into it, and that''s what being a whore is like. It''s awful work.
r12 I''m imagining Justin Bieber and Bruce Vilanch.
R5: You''re wrong. The barring of birth control and abortion was a uniquely Romanian idiocy under Ceausescu. As you''ll see from the link, abortion was legal in the Czech Republic since 1957. The Czech Republic did not have the epidemic of unwanted births, baby abandonment, and horror-filled orphanages.
The first place I went when I got my passport several years ago was Prague. Honestly, I was pretty disappointed with the quality of guys walking the streets. There wasn''t a gorgeous Bel Ami clone in sight--just a bunch of twinky chainsmokers and pudgy laborers. \
Actually, the cutest guy I met was a hotel manager in his late 20s. He was so kind and hot in a dorky way.
Do you mean all the eastern european guys who go into Bel Ami, and other gay porn, OP?
Typical Czech guy. Most of the hot ones stayed in Slovakia when it broke off.
It''s amazing how many guys in Eastern Europe have gone into gay porn over the past 2 decades. Hundreds and hundreds of them. Perhaps thousands.
R11, I believe the term "obese" was used in terms of your overall body and "shrivelled" in terms of your dick.%0D\
Get quicker on the uptake and you''ll be fine.
r5, that has nothing to do with the Czech Republic. Have you ever been there? The population skews pretty old.%0D\
They''re whores because they have virtually no association of sex with morality, at least partly as a legacy of communism. And they want to live like Westerners but recognize that they''re behind in wealth, so they sell what Westerners will buy.
It''s amazing how many straight guys in Czech will go into gay porn.
[italic]They''re whores because they have virtually no association of sex with morality, at least partly as a legacy of communism.[/italic]\
Then communism is pretty good.
Unlike the "straight" guys in American gay porn, some of the guys in eastern euro gay porn may actually be straight.
Czech Republic is not really poor by EE standards (only behind Slovenia). Of course, those standards are well bellow western world, but so are local prices. Compared to Romania, they are rich (they have about 3 times as high GNP per capita and not that much higher costs of living).\
So it''s not desperate poverty (well, except for the drug addicts), but relatively easy money that goes further way than it would in the US. There''s also still some of the Glamorous America mistique left from the iron communist times and people want to be a part of it - one way or another.
Why are they so fucking hung?
It looks like a culture thing. Czech men are typically very good looking, hung, and gay for pay. Since most of them are flaunting it and getting paid for it, then everyone is doing it.
William Higgins and George Duroy
If guys go into gay porn in America, it''s usually because they are gay. If guys go into gay porn from eastern europe, it may be because they need the money and the sexuality issue is not as much of a problem.
In an interview the Bel Ami owner said he had to spend quite a bit of time ''cleaning up'' his models to get them marketable for American mainstream tastes. That includes removing the mullets, piercings etc.
And fixing their teeth, r31.
I found the article!
PRAGUE, Czech Republic %E2%80%94 Martin Justel is 20, as old as the Czech democracy and, arguably, just as mature.
He is scrawny and too tall for his body mass. He has a baby face, short auburn hair, long eyelashes and a vacant expression. He looks hardly 18 but his eyes, blinking slowly, convey the gloom and servitude of somebody much older. In the terminology of the American gay sexual marketplace, he is a classic "twink," a thin, young, pretty boy.
He whispers "hello" as he tiptoes into the Prague film studio of William Higgins, 67, an American producer and "dean of gay porn" who moved to Prague right after communism ended to corner the gay sex market, arriving around the same time two other bearded vanguards of capitalism %E2%80%94 Santa Claus and Colonel Sanders %E2%80%94 showed up to monopolize Christmas and fried chicken.
All three have found fertile ground here.
"You can take off your clothes," says Rado Pauer, Higgins' cameraman, stage artist and translator, as he walks over to Justel to hand him half of a blue pill, which he swallows without question.
Justel knows the drill already. This is, after all, his second time shooting gay erotic video. The first time, he did a solo scene and found it to be an easy way to make money doing something he does for free at home anyway.
R35, a lot more than 100 or 200 guys have gone into porn from Eastern Europe. Try thousands.
Don''t forget the women. They''re all doing it.
[quote] They''re whores because they have virtually no association of sex with morality, at least partly as a legacy of communism.%0D\
Excuse me, but higher education was free under communism. If you didn''t want to be a whore, you could go to school.
WTF are you talking about? First of all, higher education is still virtually free there, although there are current disputes about nominal fees. %0D\
Second of all, what does your post have to do with what I said? Communism forcibly displaced religion, folk wisdom and other sources of behavioral guidelines that attached morality to sexual behavior.
[quote] Nebraska is the Czech capital of the United States. Most of the population has Czech ancestry.%0D\
Isn''t Nebraska the place where that huge pedo scandal took place?%0D\
Hmmm... lax sexual mores of Czechs maybe?
Oh and third of all, r40, you know nothing about communism if you think professional opportunities were gained through "higher education." Jobs were doled out by the single-party state and its ruling communist party. All decent jobs went to people who''d demonstrated loyalty to the communist party and their families and friends. Educated people were mistrusted because their blind loyalty was suspect and they were lucky to get jobs like shoveling coal into basement heaters.
Boys, boys, let''s stop bickering and start posting pictures of Czech whores!
Only a few people have gotten to fuck Pavel''s hole since he is apparently straight.\
The best one was Chris Steele in "Czech Point". He fuck''s Pavel''s ass in his office on top of a desk and Pavel has one of the biggest orgasms in history.
lol@people who actually think the Czech Republic is anything like Romania, or that the Czech are poor and desperate. You should really go and visit, at least Prague if nothing else. One of my favorite European cities. %0D\
But, anyway, I''ve spent lots of time in Prague, and I''ve found the Czech average-looking. Nothing special. I really don''t get the fascination.
Agreed, Prague is gorgeous, the people not so much.
[quote]Pavel has one of the biggest orgasms in history.%0D\
Damn, my history books were full of boring stuff like civil wars and explorers.
R48, if the Czechs aren''t poor, then why do so many of the guys go into gay porn to make money?
r48, have you never seen Bel Ami or William Higgen''s movies from there? All the guys -- ALL of them -- afe fucking hung and gorgeous.%0D\
Why do they have such big uncut cocks?
r52, obviously r48 is talking about the general population and not the select few who make a living based on being physically and sexually attractive.
Not only are they whores, but they all seem to love to bareback. Any of you ever been over there? Is it just one hot guy after the next?
Romania is a lot poorer than the Czech Republic. Also a more macho and homophobic society -- Orthodox religion has something to do with that and so does the country''s "Latin" legacy. If you are there be careful who you try to pick up.
lack of other opportunities, a natural unabashed healthy interest in sex, and very good cheekbones.
Actually, I''d argue that Budapest is the whore capital of Eastern Europe. I used to travel there a lot on business about 10 years ago and pimps and prostitutes were everywhere. Pimps and "club owners" were very aggressive in the main tourist areas even if you ignored them and offered services of both female and male prostitutes.
r34, Nebraska is the most Czech state in the nation -- which means that all of five percent of the population has Czech ancestry. Nebraska is more than a third German-American, which is pretty typical for the Midwest.
[quote]The issues that effect Romania are the same in the Czech Republic, Hungary. Bulgaria and all of the other Slavic, formerly communist nations.\
I don''t believe that is so. The Czech republic was always better educated and affluent than Bulgaria or Rumania.
R7, Hungary and Romania are not Slavic.
Look up Josheoa Black. Heaven.
Why are statements like this posted? There is no evidence and makes EE look so cheap. Do you know how many british university students are working in escort. No one talks about the ongrowing problem of their own people as a result of bad economy. Seems to me like an aim. There is some sort of need why WE people put themselves forward and vilify other nations.
They just keep coming and coming and they're all hung. Meet Dylan.
And their penises are all perfectly uncircumcised. Intact, the way a dick should be.
It's cultural. Anywhere you see a lot of Czech boys, they will open their legs for money!
This is nothing new.
Why is Rumania so poor? Was it very poor before communism?
May b coz they love SEX?
"it helps that so many of them are exceedingly attractive"
for about 5 minutes
The money, mostly.
DNA studies have been unable to confirm the Hungarian migration story.
That is, Hungarians seem very close to Austrians in DNA, and not Central Asian as you might expect. But testing cemeteries from a thousand years ago they found a high proportion of Central Asian DNA, so apparently wars or plagues have carried off the Magyars and left only their language.

The Czechs of Berwyn have mostly been replaced by Latinos these days.
Hooked up with a CR guy last night. His cock was monstrously big. I'm a very accommodating bottom and have seen lots of cock, but that was the biggest ever!
They always did

On the other hand, the situation in Eastern Europe is not even remotely close to that of Thailand, which has more people than Eastern Europe combined and hundreds of thousands of women and girls who are currently or used to be de facto sex slaves.
Btw the hottest Eastern European guys aren't Czech; they're from Slovakia (Bratislava in particular) and the region formerly known as Bohemia. Croatians are hot-to-death, generally speaking, as well. The further east you go, the uglier the guys get, until at last you reach the top regions of fugdom, Romania and Ukraine.
R43 doesn't understand how Communism worked, particularly in satellite countries where ultimately loyalty to RUSSIA is what counted.
They have to be the best looking white dudes on earth, along with Australians. And those penises...geez.
There are a lot more male whores from Hungary.
Kevin Warhol is beautiful....he's a nice boy next door. not overly muscled, eager sexually, and a real cum slut.
I'm just grateful.
[quote]prohibited from using contraceptives and encouraged the impoverished people to procreate further.
This could work out quite well for us.
Is r77 still around? I hope you realise that " the region formerly known as Bohemia" comprises most of today's Czech Republic (and that region is still known as Bohemia).
The guys are hot, the directors are losing their mojo though
r48, I've been to the Czech Republic, including Prague, twice, before and after the country's split. It was only after that I drove past groups of blonde women soliciting on the roadside near the border.
A bit late to the game her but just an FYI, both abortion and contraceptives were legal in East Germany (part of the Eastern Bloc). In fact one of the contentions in unification was that East Germany was much more liberal in this regard.
R34 America has over a million Czech descended people
Most Hungarians have no Magyar ancestry. The Hungarians are like the Turks : Of indigenous stock but speak the language of the conquerors who conquered them centuries ago. They derive their ethnicity from the conquerors. For Hungarians - the Magyars, the Turks - the Oghuz Turkics.
R91, do you even have a clue what "magyar" means? The Magyars know very well that they arrived from the fringes of the Steppes about a thousand years ago. Which conquerors are you referring to?
R88 doesn't know anything about the CR today.
R92, k.k.? You are honouring the old Habsburg Empire?
I think foreign gay men are more apt to be "straight-acting"- which is highly-prized in the gay community. Other than the U.S., I've only seen really nelly in the Asian countries.
The men are astoundingly good looking.
It's why Slovakia broke away.
Who are the current hot Czech models?
r94, perhaps feminine traits are not as detectable in foreign men because of cultural differences. A lot of what we detect to be femininity in men is based on language, and if you don't understand the language, you may miss on markers of femininity.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
